” . . . slain with such fire of love”

“St. Catherine of Siena ‘speaks of the crucified Jesus as “slain with such fire of love. . . as seems insatiable.  Yet still he thirsts, as if saying: ‘I have greater ardor and desire and thirst for your salvation that I am able to show you, [even] with my Passion.’ ”  Catherine could only descrive the God she encountered as ‘crazed with love.'”  (from Mother Teresa’s Secret Fire by Fr. Joseph Langford)
